NASA did an experiment with astronauts making them wear glasses with concave lenses that flipped the image of the world upside down to see how they might react to zero gravity. Incredibly, after 25–30 days all the astronauts’ brains flipped the inverted image and they perceived the world the right way up. Interestingly, for some astronauts who took the glasses off for a short time at day 15, it took another 25–30 days for them to experience the correction by their brains. You can’t miss a single day, it’s that important.
Small things done repeatedly over time lead to exceptional results.
